2022 Mill Levy Override

Our community's ongoing investment in improved learning environments, new learning opportunities and increased student safety.

In November 2022, the 27J Schools community approved a mill levy override property tax increase. This crucial, community-funded investment marked the first time in more than two decades that voters approved additional operational funding for the district and immediately infused $17.7 million in new money into 27J Schools.

These funds will provide additional, annual operational funding to address critical district needs such as increased teacher and staff salaries, enhanced Career and Technical Education learning opportunities and important safety and security upgrades.

Our commitment is the use of this money for its intended purposes to support student learning and safety as well as transparency and accountability in the use of these funds, including the formation of a community-led mill levy override accountability committee.
